It seems as though Amazon has beaten Nintendo to the punch as its revealed that Super Smash Bros Wii U will feature a Game Board mode and Stage Builder mode. The information was listed on the product description and was presumably supposed to be announced by the Kyoto based company first. Here’s the description.
“The multiplayer showdown you know and love is now on the Wii U console! Take on all comers as Mario, Mega Man, Sonic, and more gaming greats. Or tap an amiibo to the Wii U GamePad controller to train it up by battling with or against it. You can even pit your amiibo against a friends’ to see how your training methods stack up. Whether you’re creating stages on the GamePad, competing in challenges crafted by Master Hand and Crazy Hand, or outwitting your opponents in a brand new board game mode, there’s no doubt that the ultimate Smash Bros. game has arrived.”
Amazon Germany have revealed a couple of Nintendo themed cases for your collectible Amiibo figures when they are expected to go on sale next month. The novelty cases are designed by Power A who are a licensee for Nintendo. So far Amazon Germany have listed a Super Mario Question Block Case and a Red Mushroom Case.
Looking for some stellar Wii U titles that are not only great but also cheap? Well Amazon has you covered. You can get The Wonderful 101 from Platinum Games for $23 and also New Super Mario Bros U for a mere $31. Here’s the Wii U games currently on sale on Amazon.

Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS is currently sitting at number one in the Amazon.com best-sellers charts. The chart is updated hourly so it could well change, but it appears as though there’s plenty of demand for the Nintendo 3DS version which will arrive on October 3rd. We are still waiting for a release date for the Wii U version which should also do rather well.
Thanks to those who sent this in.
The evidence seems to be mounting that the long-awaited Super Smash Bros Wii U will be released on November 21st. The latest retailer to advertise the game with the date is Amazon Canada. Nintendo has yet to confirm when we can expect the Wii U version, but surely an official release date announcement isn’t too far off?
Amazon has now completed its acquisition of video game streaming site, Twitch. The news was discovered via a SEC filing. The deal cost Amazon a whopping $970 million and is the company’s most expensive acquisition to date. Hopefully we will see the fruit of their labour soon as changes are bound to be implemented.
Popular online retailer Amazon has uploaded the official packaging for the Super Smash Bros bundle for the Wii U. The bundle includes the Super Smash Bros Game for the Wii U, GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U, and Super Smash Bros Edition of the GameCube Controller and is available for $99. We’ve yet to get a release date for the Wii U version of Smash Bros, but rumours seem to indicate it’s coming November 21st.
